|Insight: Carbon-Capture Farming / Soil and Carbon / Mining Toxins|
Carbon-Capture Farming - The U.S. Geological Survey has teamed up with UC Davis and other agencies in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to research "carbon-capture" farming. Today on Insight, you'll learn why trapping carbon dioxide and rebuilding the soil base is important. Soil and Carbon - A new study by a UC Davis researcher shows that some soils have a limited capacity to absorb carbon. Why is that and how might it play out with future carbon-capture farming programs? Mining Toxins - T...

|MIT 11.941 Use of Joint Fact Finding in Science Intensive Policy Disputes, Part I, Fall 2003 - MIT OpenCourseWare|
11.941 and 11.942 make up a one-year seminar. The goal of this seminar is to explore the role of science and scientists in ecosystems and natural resources management focusing on joint fact finding as a new approach to environmental policy-making. Increasingly scientists and science organizations are confronting a conundrum: Why is science often ignored in important societal decisions even as the call for decisions based on sound science escalates? One reason is that decision-making is often dr...
